fajita night!


dinner the other night was great. sumeet helped me make chicken fajitas! quite delicious, heavy, and super satisfying.

clockwise from top left: hot salsa, sour cream, shredded cheese, pickled jalapenos, warm tortillas, homemade guacamole, and in the center is seared fajita veggies and cumin-chili chicken strips.

yummm! i love foods that you can build yourself, especially when you have these tasty ingredients to choose from. we were both very very full after eating a few of these... since many of these sides you can pick up ready-made from any supermarket, this is a cheap and easy meal that's practical for busy nights, or nights you might feel too tired to make everything from scratch. the key is to cook the veggies and meat on a very hot, ungreased skillet in order to get that nice charred bits along the edges :) so delicious. thanks sumeet for coming and helping me cook a delicious meal!
